jonathan karl tells us about the news today. >> reporter: by one count, president obama has already used unmanned cia drones to strike more than 300 suspected terrorist targets, even more than his predecessor. but today, we learned just how much authority the administration believes it has to kill, without trial or evidence, suspected terrorists, even american citizens. a newly disclosed justice department document says american citizens tied to al qaeda can be killed, if, "an informed, high-level official believes the target poses an imminent threat." but the document says it "does not require the government to have clear evidence." case in point, anwar al awlaki, an american citizen and top al qaeda leader, linked to several terrorist attacks. he was killed in a 2011 drone strike. human rights advocates say the justice department memo goes way too far. and -- >> justifies essentially a claim that the executive branch can be judge, jury and executioner. >> reporter: as soon as he became president, barack obama stopped cia tactics like waterboarding that he considered torture. but this j

biting victory. 34-31. most of us will remember it was the night that went out in new orleans. a power outage in new orleans stopped the game for 34 minutes it may have prevented a interest bowl blowout. we are joined by rachel in new orleans. >> good morning, soledad. no question, this was a huge embarrassment. i spoke to a superdome official last night, they had gone through a whole week with the stadium and city showing they could host an event of this magnitude. it not a gradient issue. this was about a piece of electronic equipment that monitors the electricity coming into the stadium. officials called it an "ab normality." really, it's just like in your house, when you have to go down to the basement and flip the switch again, that's what happened with the officials. they had to flip everything back open. lights slowly came back on. 34 minutes. a big delay for the ravens especially. right before, a kickoff return for the touchdown. right before that, the halftime show. and their offense hadn't been on the field for more than 80 minutes. you could see it affect the game.
was rescued. the pentagon was involved in some way here, leon panetta okaying the use of special equipment used for monitoring. that would have meant that military personnel were also on site but were not part of the takedown. it shows you that concern for this little boy went almost all the way to the top of this administratio administration. >> i know we don't know exact details of how this went down but authorities said they observed this man holding a gun. do we know how they were able to actually observe him? we've been told all along they've been communicating through this pvc piping. >> right. and apparently they've been doing a lot more than just talking through a pipe. we have been told now that there may have been surveillance of some sort, video surveillance. we have also heard maybe the use of drones would be part of that surveillance. there was a lot of high-tech equipment brought to bear. hundreds maybe at some point all surrounding this area and all in some way taking part in the operatio operation. >> is there any understanding of why dykes took this boy off the bus? >> rep

on the response to the milestone week to the dow, let's go to kristen welker at the white house for us. good saturday morning to you. what is the take on the latest economic news, after the rocky start with the negative gdp number? >> good morning, alex. a real mixed bag this week. the white house responding as they typically do, when we get one of these jobs reports or gdp reports, saying, look, these are signs that the economy is recovering, but that there is still a lot of work left to be done. particularly on the jobs report, to take that part, alex. the white house pointing that the jobs numbers were revised last year and at the ends the e month to show higher hiring. the fact nah manufacturing, construction, had a strong showing in the jobs report, but, of course, the negative side of that, the unemployment rate did tick up to 7.9%. that is indication there is more work to be done on the economy. republicans pointing to that number and the gdp report which showed the economy basically shrunk to say that the obama economy is not working. you look at the gdp number, what is interesting,
